I had this same problem on my sansa and tryed the previous solution with no luck. Out of frustration i email the sansa technical support. Try these steps to format the player: -Turn on the player and access MENU > SETTINGS > USB > MSC - Once the player is set to MSC mode, reconnect it to the computer and open the My Computer window. - Once you see the Sansa icon in the My Computer window, right-click it and choose FORMAT - In the Format window, choose FAT 32 and make sure that Quick Format is NOT selected, then choose START -Once the format has completed, disconnect the player from the computer to allow it to refresh. If you plan on using Windows Media Player to transfer files, return to the USB menu and set the player to MTP mode. Otherwise, leave the player in MSC mode and you can now resume transferring files. Formatting your player will deleate all files but you can putt them back on!!! Best of luck!

SOURCE: pb for my sandisk m230 mp3 player

Same thing happened to me... try this...
1) disconnect all cables
2) turn power on (hold menu button until screen lights up)
3) Press "menu"
4) scroll down to "settings"
5) scroll down to "USB"
6) select "MSC" (default is probably auto detect - which I think there's a conflict with)
7) turn power off (holding the menu button down)
8) connect USB to computer and hopefully start loading files

I bought 2 of the 512 models, one didn't work... so I took it back and had to buy a 2gig model... got home and it didn't work! I tried the above for the new one and at least the computer recognizes it! Everything seems to work fine...for now...

My SanDisk is a portable USB/ compatible to IMAC?


although your mp3 player may not officially be imac compatible, it should still plug in and be recognized by your imac just fine, you just wont be able to use any software that may or may not come with the mp3 player, however given that its not a zune (microsoft product) and that its not an ipod, it should work perfectly fine, and you should be able to simply drag and drop your music onto the mp3 player when it is recognized by your imac. just be sure to copy the files over to it while its plugged in by using the file browser of your mac.

Won't recognize music files


My Sansa only reads mp3 or WMA files, not mp4 files.
also, i have tried three different computers, and all of them recognize (or NOT) my player differently....
